A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook.
Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if they could get at least 1,000 shares on a Facebook post
The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge.
“I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.”
The police made it clear that they didn’t know if the wanted man would actually stay true to his word, but they thought completing the challenge was worth a shot. After news of it went viral online, the police managed to get over 4,000 shares on their post, so it was up to Michael Zydel to fulfill his promise.
The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. (NewTelegraph learnt)
“Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said.
“He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.”
Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation.
